DUNDEE TIGERS have announced the signing of father and son, Stuart and Robbie Barnett for the forthcoming season.

Barnett senior is a no-nonsense defenceman whose intensity and desire is plain for all to see as well as being a motivational master and will couple playing and coaching duties.

Son Robbie comes to the Tigers having most recently played for the Dundee Stars under 20’s.

The youngster has performed well in early season training and is looking forward to making his SNL debut.

A Tigers Spokesman said: “Stuart is a key member of the Tigers team and has a huge amount of respect from the guys, demanding a lot of himself and the players around him.

“He’s a leader and a motivator and an obvious choice to enhance the coaching team at the club.

“Robbie is a great player who works hard, has good hands and can find the net. We’re happy that he’s decided to join us and know we’ll get the best out him this season.”

Robbie will make his debut on Saturday 5th September when Tigers travel to Aberdeen to face the Lynx in Autumn Cup action.
